Subject: Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chemical and Biological
Sciences at UMBC
The 17th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chemical and
Biological Sciences at UMBC will take place on Saturday, October 25, 2014.
This student-focused event is sponsored by the National Institute of General
Medical Sciences of the NIH.
The Symposium invites mentor-approved contributions from undergraduates
investigating any aspect of chemistry, biology and biochemistry. These
advances will be disseminated in a daylong event that typically offers nearly
200 student contributions and gathers more than 400 beginning scientists,
mentors, and other guests. The event will feature two poster sessions with
posters judged by panels of participating mentors and other qualified
attendees. Judges will rank first and second place posters in each category
with non-financial awards presented at the event’s end.
Abstracts, using the prescribed format, must be uploaded online at the event
website: http://cnmssymposium.umbc.edu/. The deadline for abstract
submissions is September 25, 2014. It is tentatively planned to inform
student authors on the status of their submissions by mid-October. Students
submitting abstracts should plan to present their research at this event.
Registration is free and required. All attendees are asked to register their
attendance at http://cnmssymposium.umbc.edu/. Light-fare refreshments and
lunch will be provided.
